Isreal struck their own people first in response to Hamas move before they struck Muslims. There are some real people in the world that will not take events as they are portrayed by mainstream media. There is still a good chance the EF deal to come through. If not we are better off building on our own capabilities on fast track. We can go full steam with engine development and squeeze time to the maximum by starting every aspect of development without waiting for results from previous development steps. This way we can probably do 10 ears of work in just 4 years. This is wisfull thinking but is more likely to happen.Looking at this from afar - with no allegiance to Turkiye, Hamas, Israel, Germany or the US - I rate the chances of Turkiye receiving F-16 or Typhoon as near zero, given what I hear Erdogan say in his speeches since Israel struck back after the October 7 Hamas attack. In my opinion it is now wishful thinking to imagine that either will be supplied.
Turkiye had better get on buying Russian, Chinese or Pakistani if it wants something before KAAN is available with a Turkish engine. The least objectionable choice to NATO would be Pakistani, I guess. How would JF-17 compare to F-4?
